    Umm, I only heard one nutjob say that. What do you mean by MANY?

    I say he gets 1200 and Faulk gets around 600.

      I'd be more inclined to agree with RAM-BO, but I'm not that optimistic. From what I have seen of him, unless he quits dancing in the backfield and realizes he's not Faulk, he will get stopped short many more times than he will break big runs. He's got to play to his strengths, and that is more power running. He has tried to hard to be more finesse, and the Rams haven't done enough so far to improve the run blocking situation, IMHO.

        Frankly, I'm not sure I'd want him to lead the league in rushing. I'd rather there be more balance on offense. I would be happy with the following numbers for Jackson:

        1,360 yards (85 yards per game)
        4.5 yards per carry
        48 receptions (3 per game)
        408 receiving yards (8.5 per reception)
        16 TDs (combined rushing & receiving)

        Combine that with Bulger passing for 4,000 yards and 30 TDs, Holt and Bruce having 1,000 yards each, and contributions from Faulk, Curtis, Klopfenstein and Byrd, and you'd have a nice balanced attack.

                    Okay, Jackson ran for 1,042 yards
                    by ramsanddodgers
                    and only 16 Running Backs had more than 1,000 while another 4 had 900+.

                    The question is, is 1,000 yards still the goal that it used to be?

                    I realize that in today's NFL where the passing game is so much more relied upon that it may be harder to get enough carries to get the yards but one need only average 62.5 yards a game to get the 1,000.

                    Averaging 75 yards a game will get one 1,200 yards and 93.75 will garner 1,500.

                    Is it time to set a loftier goal for "premiere" runners or is 1,000 yards still going to be the 'magic number?

                    by RamWraith
                    ...go back to Faulk after a performance like that of Jackson's against one of the best run defenses in the league.

                    S. Jackson Rushing title?
                    by RamsFan16
                    Do you guys think that Steven Jackson has a chance of winning the Rushing Title? I mean if he keeps this up I think he could. 100yds a game= 1,600yds

                    Ineffective running game???
                    by HUbison
                    I'm not sure where the notion is coming from that our running game has been so blatently ineffective that Martz has to pass on 80% of the plays as he did against the 'aints. Our running game is 7th in yards per attempt at 4.7 yards per carry. We are one of only five teams that have no runs for more than 20 yards. (Translation: there aren't a couple of 60,70, or 80 yard anomaly runs skewing that yards per carry average.) Yet we are dead last in runs per game. And we have the lowest run-pass ratio in the NFL. Why must our run-pass ratio be so low?

                    Some teams that are traditional passing teams, like Green Bay (who run 45.9% of the time, 3.9 ypc) you can understand. Or teams like Dallas (36.3%, 4.0 ypc) & Cincinnati (41.5%, 3.8 ypc), who are new-found passing teams. For that matter, there are the teams that are forced to pass more because of suspect RBs like Arizona (42.0%, 3.3 ypc), Philly (37.3%, 4.6 ypc), Miami (38.5%, 2.1 ypc), Tampa (35.2%, 3.5 ypc) or Detroit (43.7%, 3.5 ypc).

                    And yet, with Faulk & Jackson and their combined 4.7 ypc (which is higher than every team mentioned above), we run less (34.5%) than any of them.

                    Again I ask, why are we not running the ball?

                    Will Jackson Break 1,000 Yards?
                    by schut39
                    Do you guys think that Steven can break the 1,000 yard rushing mark for the 4th straight season? He currently has 525 rushing yards. So he has 5 games to get 475 more yards. That is an average of 95 yards per game. It could be hard for him because our o-line isn't exactly perfect. Our remaining opponents are currently ranked 9th, 8th, 22nd, 14th, and 21st against the run. So what do you think?
